Going Solar

Residential, commercial or industrial we can help with all your power system needs.
By harnessing the power of the sun, wind or water, people all over the
world produce their own pollution-free reliable electricity. Technologi-
cal advances, government assistance, the need for reliable power, and
the growing urgency to reduce the use of fossil fuels make renewable
energy systems increasingly attractive to people around the world.
Solar technology makes it possible for home and business owners to
have dependable power from renewable sources. Mass production
has significantly reduced the price of renewable energy systems and
their components. Solar systems with battery-based backup power can
ensure reliable power even when the utility grid is down.
The use of renewable sources such as wind, water and sun increases our
energy self-sufficiency and fosters economic and national security. As
more families, individuals and businesses generate their own renewable electricity we will reduce pollution, provide more electricity
for all to use, reduce the use of fossil fuels, and make the electricity on the grid greener.
Deregulation has created an atmosphere of change in the United States. We are experiencing higher electricity rates and electricity
shortages. Laws usually referred to as net metering allow solar-energy-system owners to feed their excess generated electricity back
to the utility. The system owner receives a credit or payment for solar-generated electricity fed into the grid. In other words, you pay
only for the net electricity you consume the amount of electricity you take from the utility minus the amount you generate and feed
back from your solar system. With a solar electric system, you can provide yourself with protection from the rising prices of fuel,
because your systems fuel is the sun. Additionally, state, local and federal tax incentives and rebates make obtaining a system more

electric power system on your home, business or public building.
For decades, off-grid standalone power systems not
connected to utility electric transmission lines have
generated power using solar energy for remote homes,
communications facilities, telemetry, traffic control, public
transportation, remote mining and drilling and scores of
other applications. Now, people who live on the utility
grid can economically install and obtain the benefits of
solar and renewable energy systems.
Lock in your cost of electricity
The higher the percent of your total electricity needs
generated by your solar system, the less affected you will
be by constantly rising costs of conventionally generated
electric power.
Obtain tax credits and rebates
Tax credits and rebates are available in many states to
people and businesses who install solar powered products.

information for your area.
Feed power back to the utility
In many states, you can send your home-generated power
back to the utility and get credit for the power you feed
into the utility grid.
Generate green power
Generate electricity with energy from the sun, wind or
water, producing virtually no pollution or emissions.
Gain power independence
With the use of batteries and possibly a generator as
needed, you can rely on your own generating capacity,
and not on the vagaries of public utilities.
Ensure uninterrupted power
With a battery backup system, you can keep your appli-
ances running during utility power outages.
No moving parts!
Solar electricity is the only form of energy generation that
does not involve any moving part, substantially decreasing
maintenance requirements and increasing reliability and
long equipment life.

PV Array Design Worksheet Determine the array size for your grid-connected system.
Step 1 Find your monthly average electricity usage from your electric bill.
This will be in kilowatt-hours (kWh). Due to air conditioning, heating and other seasonal usage, it is
a good idea to look at several bills. You can add the typical summer, fall, winter and spring bills and
divide by four to find the average monthly usage.
Step 2 Find your daily average electricity use.
Divide the monthly average number of kWh use by 30 (days)
Step 3 Find your locations average peak sun hours per day.
See the maps and listings on page 14, and/or the insolation maps beginning page 194. For example, the aver-

age for California is 5 peak sun hours

Step 4 Calculate the system size (AC watts) to provide 100% of your electricity.
Divide your daily average electricity use by average sun hours per day. For example, if the daily average
electricity use is 30 kWh, and the site is in California, system size would be: 30 kWh / 5 h = 6 kW AC
Step 5 Calculate the number of pv modules required for this system.
Divide the system AC watts in Step 4 by the CEC watt rating of the modules to be used, then divide by the
inverter efficiency, usually 0.94, and you get the total number of modules required. (Round this number up)

System Design
differently and are much more complex than standard
grid-tie systems without batteries. They need to be
custom designed. If you need a backup system, con-
sult with us to determine all the system components
that you will need.
Inverters for Grid-Tie with Battery Backup
OutBack also makes inverters and switchgear that
can be assembled into larger grid-tie w/ battery
backup systems.
The new Xantrex XW series of inverters offers
grid-tie inverters with battery backup capability in
6000-watt increments. Several can be stacked for
12kW or 18kW battery backup systems.

You can use the following steps to determine the dual-function inverter size and the battery capacity that your system will require.
Follow steps 1-5 on the PV Array Design Worksheet on page 8 to determine the size of the array required to provide the desired
percentage of total power. Then calculate the inverter size and battery capacity needed using the worksheet below.

Grid-Tie with Battery Backup

Worksheet: Inverter and Batteries for Grid-Tie w/ Backup System
Step 1 Find the power requirements (watts) for the appliances you need to power
during a black-out.
Make a list of the loads and appliances that you absolutely need to power during an outage. Only list the essential
items since the system size (and cost) will vary widely with power needed. The wattage of individual appliances
can usually be found on the back of the appliance or in the owners manual. You can use a Kill-a-Watt meter for
better measurements (page 120). If an appliance is rated in amps, multiply amps by the operating voltage (120 or
240) to find watts. Add up the wattage of all the items on your list to arrive at the total amount of watts that you
need to run all at the same time. This will determine the size of the dual-function inverter that you will need.
Step 2 Decide the blackout duration you want to be prepared for.
Power outages last from a portion of an hour to a day (or more). Again, this decision will greatly affect the
system size and cost, so it is more cost-effective to stay on the conservative side.
Step 3 Find the amount of stored power required.
Multiply the power requirements (in step 1) by duration in hours (in step 2). The result will be in watt-hours. For
instance, if you need to power 1000 watts of appliances for 2 hours, you would need to have 2000 watt-hours
(or 2 kWh) of stored power.
Step 4 Calculate the power storage needed.
Multiply the figure arrived at in step 3 by 1.7. In the example, 2 kWh X 1.7 = 3.4 kWh of stored power
Step 5 Calculate battery capacity needed.
Divide the power storage requirement needed from step 4 by the DC voltage of the system (usually 48V, but
sometimes 24V) to get battery amp-hour (Ah) capacity. See the battery section on page 126 for more information
on batteries. Most backup systems use sealed batteries due to their greatly reduced maintenance requirements,
and because they can be more easily placed in enclosed battery compartments.

Solar Array Sizing Worksheet for use with MPPT Charge Controllers

System Design
Begin on page 14, steps 1 - 4 before starting on this page.

Step 5 Total solar array amps required from Step 4 of module worksheet for standard controllers.

Step 6 Enter average changing voltage: use 13.5V for 12V systems; use 27V for 24V systems;
use 54V for 48V systems.
Step 7 Multiply Step 5 result by Step 6 result. This is the total PV array wattage required.

Step 8 Enter the peak power wattage of the chosen PV module. (Use the module's Peak Power wattage at STC.)

Step 9 Divide the wattage on Step 7 by the wattage on Step 8. This is the total number of modules
needed. Round up to the nearest whole number. (NOTE: this number may need to be adjusted in Step 11.)
Step 10 Number of modules in each series string. See table below, and add number here.

*In climates that never have freezing temperatures below 10F, four Mitsubishi 185UD5
modules may be used in series

Step 11 Divide the number of total modules in Step 9 by the number of modules per series string from Step 10. This is
the total number of array series strings. If this is not a whole number, either increase or decrease the number
of modules in Step 9 to obtain a whole number of series strings. CAUTION: decreasing the total number of
modules may result in insufficient power production.
Step 12 Determine wattage of each series string. Multiply module wattage from Step 8 by number of modules per
string on Step 10. This is the total wattage per string.

Step 13 Determine number of module strings per controller. Divide appropriate wattage figure from the chart below
by the wattage per string from Step 12. Round down to a whole number. This is the total number of module
strings per controller. If you have more module strings (from Step 11) than can be handled by the chosen
controller, either use a larger controller, or use multiple controllers.

Step 14 Divide total number of strings from Step 11 by the number of strings per controller from Step 13. Round up
to a whole number. This is the total number of chosen controllers needed.

Engineered Grid-Tie PV Systems with Battery Backup

Pre-Configured Systems
These full-service renewable energy systems give you all the benefits of utility
interconnection and net metering plus energy independence. With these grid-tie
systems, backup AC power is made available in the event of a utility outage,
providing reliable power and peace of mind. An average conversion efficiency
of 89% to 91% using the California Energy Commission (CEC) test protocol
provides greater savings and a shorter time period for system payback than pre-
vious designs.
Battery-backup grid-tie systems come with modules, array wiring, combiner
boxes, roof mounting structures, inverters/control systems with all required
over-current protection and disconnects. (Your specific installation or utility may
require additional AC disconnects, which we can supply as needed). They require
a 48-volt battery bank to operate. The size of the battery determines the amount of
backup power available during power failure. Use the worksheet on the page 11
to determine battery bank size. Battery backup systems qualify for the California
Energy Commission incentives and the federal tax credit.

Designing Your RPPS System

Pre-Configured Systems
Use the steps below to determine which system is best for your application.
1. Calculate your amp-hour per day (A-h/d) power requirements. This is the amp draw of the equipment to be powered, times the
hours per day it will require power, times 1.2
2. Locate the zone in which your site is located on the map on the previous page.
3. The table below shows the amp-hours per day performance for each RPPS system in each of the solar insolation zones. Look at
the insolation zone columns in the table below and find a value the meets or exceeds your design load requirements. That row
represents the RPPS systems that will fully power your load requirements. The table shows systems to power 12-volt and 24-volt
loads. Be sure to look in the appropriate voltage section for the load you are powering. Systems to power 36-volt and 48-volt DC
and 120- or 230-volt AC are also available; please contact us for a quote.

Evergreen Solar
Solar Modules

New! ES and ES-A Modules

Evergreen Solar modules are designed to deliver the best performance and depend-
ability from Evergreen Solars patented String Ribbon wafer technology. These
modules have one of the tightest power tolerances in the industry.

Maximum power up to 4% above rated, minimum only 2% below rated
Anti-reflection cover glass delivers more energy
Backed by a 25-year limited power warranty; 2-year workmanship
A rigid, double-walled, deep frame with integrated water drainage holes
Crimped frame corners no screws to loosen
Sealed junction box never needs field maintenance
UL, cUL and CEC approved
Leading Environmental Credentials
Energy payback time up to 40% faster than leading crystalline
Low carbon dioxide emissions in the manufacturing process up to
33% less than other leading crystalline technologies
Low lead use of lead-free solder for all solar cell inter-connections
PV Modules

PV modules produced by Evergreen Solar are distinctive in their appearance

because they incorporate proprietary crystalline silicon technology known as
String Ribbon. In the String Ribbon technique, two high-temperature strings are
pulled vertically through a shallow silicon melt, and the molten silicon spans and
freezes between the strings. The process is continuous: long strings are unwound
from spools; the melt is replenished; and the silicon ribbon is cut to length for
further processing, without interrupting growth.
Evergreen ES modules utilize two parallel strings of 54 cells in series. They can
be used for battery charging with an MPPT charge controller such as the OutBack
MX-60, Apollo T-80 or the BlueSky series of charge controllers. Use up to 3 modules in series with the MX-60 or T-80 charge con-
troller. Evergreen ES-A modules utilize three parallel strings of 38 cells in series giving an 18-volt peak power voltage which allows
easier string sizing and fewer strings in grid-tie systems and also provides optimum voltage for battery charging with conventional
as well as MPPT charge controllers.
They have Multi-Contact cables. Evergreen modules are UL, cUL and CEC approved. Modules are made in either USA or Germany.
10-year 90% power warranty, 25-year 80% power warranty.

Mitsubishi Solar
Solar Modules

As a general manufacturer of electrical machinery and appliances, Mitsubishi Electric

Corporation offers a legacy of innovation and achievement that goes all the way back to
its founding in 1921.
Since 1976, when Japan launched its first commercial satellite, Mitsubishi has partici-
pated in approximately 250 related projects around the world. One such project led to the
development of a number of photovoltaic power generation systems that have proven to
be extremely reliable, even in the harsh conditions of outer space.
PV-Series Modules
Mitsubishi has applied leading-edge technologies from its space-related applications to
terrestrial systems to create high-performance photovoltaic power-generation systems for
an astonishing range of applications. Mitsubishi Electric successfully produced the first
cells in Japan that do not require solder coatings. This was a milestone in the develop-
ment of environmentally friendly composite materials and manufacturing processes for
the silver electrodes used on the surfaces of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells. Their
PV modules are now made using lead-free solder, completely eliminating lead from the
manufacturing process.
The 175-watt and larger modules are designed for use in high-voltage grid-tie applica-
tions, but can be used in large industrial and off-grid applications for battery charging if
the system includes an appropriate MPPT charge controller such as the OutBack MX-60,
Apollo T80 or BlueSky Solar Boost.
These modules use 50 square poly-crystalline 156mm cells in series behind tempered

AEE Solar
Mounting Structures

New! SnapRack Mounting System

Faster Installation, Lower Cost
AEE Solar SnapRack was developed by a team of veteran solar engineers
working with installers in the field, dedicated to overcoming the limitations
of conventional racking and ensuring a quick, efficient installation. SnapRack
is a major advance in simplifying and reducing the cost of the solar installa-
tion process.
SnapRack is compatible with modules from virtually any manufacturer.
Snap-in sliding module clips ensure quick and easy installation and precise
alignment. Mid-clips are a half-inch wide to keep the math simple. Every bolt
in the system uses the same size wrench, ensuring efficient installation and
reducing the wear and tear on your man-hours on the roof during installa-
tion. And theres no need to drill any holes in the rails to connect standoffs
and L-feet! The channels in the rail profiles can house running module leads,
providing better aesthetics and improved conductor protection.
SnapRack is engineered for durability and structural integrity in all environ-
ments, with excellent seismic, wind and snow loading protection on all com-
ponents. Its compact and efficient rail design reduces material requirements
and ensures a low profile installation on your roof.
The AEE Solar SnapRack has been engineered from the ground up to ensure
maximum standoff adjustability for a clean, level installation on even the most
irregular roof surface. Simple vertical and horizontal adjustability enables
Roof Mounts

superior fit and array alignment. Tilt-up can be achieved with pieces of cut
rail and L-feet.
AEE Solar SnapRack Kits
SnapRack kits come with standard rail, splice kits, mid-clamps, end-clamps and
mounting feet needed for the number of modules used. Mounts for modules
with black frames come with black anodized mid- and end-clamps. To order, choose the prefix that matches the brand and model of
modules to be mounted, then add a suffix to match the number of modules to be mounted. Cutting of aluminum rail is required.

Mounting Structures

Uniracs SolarMount is a fast, easy, safe way to install a PV array in
virtually any roof or ground installation. Bottom mounting clips and
tilt legs supplement traditional top mounting clamps. As a result, the
system accommodates the widest variety of installations and assem-
bly preferences on the roof and on the ground. Any framed module
sold in North America can be mounted using SolarMount.
Lower-cost SolarMount Light Rail employs 38 percent less alu-
minum than SolarMount Standard Rail, yet its more than strong

and footing components that make SolarMount Standard Rail so S-5! Light Rail Standard Rail
easy to install.
Once youve selected the PV modules and planned your installation layout, youre ready to choose SolarMount components. The
table on the following page shows what components to use if you are bottom-mounting the modules. The table on page 38 shows
what parts to use if you are top-mounting the modules. If you need tilt legs for the mounts, see the explanation on pages 44-45. Rail
and parts to complete your mounting system can be found on pages 39 to 42.
When sizing is complete, rails, splices, and L-feet may be ordered in two ways: In kits or in bulk. 2- and 4-rail kits on page 39 contain
just the right quantities of each component for a given installation.
The 8-piece bulk rail bundles on page 40 require the addition of L-feet, and splices when necessary, along with top-mount clamps
(either bulk or in pre-packaged sets) or back mount clips.

SolarMount S-5!

Mounting Structures
PV Clamp Sets for Standing Seam Roofing
The Unirac SolarMount S-5! PV clamps provide non-penetrating attachment points
to standing seam metal roofs. Select SolarMount end clamps and mid clamps and
attach modules directly to the S-5! clamp without mounting rails. Use end clamps
on the edge of the array and mid clamps between rows within the array. End clamps
and mid clamps are anodized. S-5! clamps are mill finish.
Use the application table below to find the size C, D, E or F that fits the modules
being used. Order end clamps for outside rows of modules and mid clamp for internal rows.
Roof design, tilt angle, snow loading, seam spacing, building dimension and wind loading all affect S-5! system design. Please fill
out the Unirac questionnaire at: and you will receive a complete bill of materials with

When an installation has to look great, SunFrame offers finish
choices and low, clean lines that become as natural a part of a
home as a skylight. The rails are available in clear and dark bronze
finish to match the module frames. The SunFrame rails run hori-
zontally across the roof between the modules making the array
look like one large skylight. Installation is slightly more difficult
than using SolarMount with top clamps because rail alignment
must be perfect. Since the modules will sit closer to the roof, the
array may operate at a higher temperature and there may be a
small loss of performance.
Contact us with your module type, quantity, number of rows and
foot spacing for design help, or use the online SunFrame estimator
to get a list of components needed. With this list, we can give you
price and delivery time.

2. 192" module-specific cap strips secure modules and finish the
array topside, forming a gap-free frame. Self-drilling screws
at 16" intervals provide holding power. Order cap strips for
the module brand and model to be installed. Cap strips are
available in clear or dark bronze anodized finishes.
3. End caps finish rail ends to complete the frame.
4. L-feet attach directly through asphalt shingle roofs and support
the rails one-half to three-quarters of an inch above the roof
surface to provide convective air flow for ventilation.

NEW! RapidRac G10
Uniracs new universal ballasted flat roof solution accommodates a wide range
of modules and requires very few or no penetrations, depending on location
and building codes. Minimal parts, faster installation, reduced labor expenses
and versatility; all customer-driven demands that helped engineer this unique
flat roof solution.
The RapidRac G10 was developed through significant computational fluid
dynamics and wind tunnel engineering. The efficient design, built at a fixed
10 degree tilt angle, optimizes natural convective cooling of the modules and
was designed to meet the requirements of current applicable building codes.
Installations consist of 2-bay frames and 1-bay frames. Each frame holds one ARRAY NORTH

Unirac Series 5002
Mounting Structures

PV PoleTops
Unirac PV PoleTops pole mounts use SolarMount Light Rails
and clips (page 39). The lightweight rails are hollow aluminum
extrusions that provide great strength over long spans and help
keep shipping costs low. The back-mount clips slip into rail slots
and quickly align with module mounting holes for fast and easy
Unirac mounts use a 6-digit part number. The first 4 digits are
determined by the series. See descriptions on this page for each
series. See the next page for mounts for specific modules.

Small-Module Side-of-Pole Mount
These low-cost, universal side-of-pole mounts are available in two
sizes to hold a single small module 10.75" to 21.5" in width. Their
unique module clamp-and-slot combination eliminates the need for
bolt holes in the module by clamping to the inside of the module
frame. Mounts have a fully adjustable tilt angle mechanism which
can be set for maximum solar panel efficiency depending on your
location and the season. Two sizes fit most small modules.

the PV array around the pipe, providing greater stability for larger
Active Trackers arrays. The corners do not protrude down towards the ground or
stick up in the air to catch the wind. The bottom edge of the array
always remains parallel to the ground and requires less ground
clearance than tilt & roll tracker. Wattsuns azimuth trackers
provide nearly 270 degrees of rotational movement and can adjust
from 5 to 75 degrees of elevation tilt.
AZ-125 Trackers
The AZ-125 gear-drive, azimuth tracker comes standard as a
single-axis tracker with manual seasonal tilt adjustment. It is
powered by a 24 VDC drive motor running a high quality worm

Tracking Module Mount and Charge Controller
The SunTracer can track 1 or 2 modules and is ideal for small power systems, RVs and water
pumping systems. It uses timer-activated gear motors to position the modules toward the sun on
a pole mount. It features a 30-amp charge controller for 12- or 24-volt systems, built-in backup
battery for the timer, adjustable charge voltage, and 100 degree motor rotation. The mounting
clamp can be bolted to any pole up to 1-1/2" schedule 40 pipe.
Installation is simple with universal module mounting clamps that only require a screw driver
and a u-bolt mounted to a pole that only requires one wrench. To set the tracking direction, you
just point the array at the sun and push 2 buttons. SunTracer is available in four models for use
with up to 2 square meters of modules. Maximum module size is determined by rail length. A
31.5" rail can hold a single module up to 130 watts, or two modules with a combined width of 31.5". The 43" rail can hold a single
module up to 175 watts, or two modules with a combined width of 43". Tracker comes with module clamps for one module. When
using two modules, order four additional module clamps.
Water pumping version has an internal rechargeable battery to return tracker to morning position at the end of each day. This is the
perfect tracker for a SHURflo or SunPump running on a single 75- to 175-watt module. See rail width in chart below to see if it will
fit the module width you are planing to use.

Universal Track Rack

Passive Solar Tracker for PV Modules
The Zomeworks passive Track Rack uses no motors, no gears and no controls
that can fail. The suns heat moves liquid from side to side, allowing gravity
to turn the Track Rack and follow the sun.
The Zomeworks Universal Track Rack System allows for almost limitless
adjustment in both the east-west and north-south directions. Available in five
standard sizes for holding 2 to 32 modules, Universal Track Racks are designed
to fit all common photovoltaic modules. This flexibility translates to faster
delivery, better quality and overall economy. The F-Series Track Racks ship
partially assembled for easy installation. The new UTRF168HD comes with heavy duty rails. Both UTRF168 trackers come with a
high wind kit. All of these mounts come with stainless steel and zinc-plated hardware and have a 10-year standard warranty.
Please specify how many of which brand of module are to be placed on the tracker. The tracker will be customized with the correct
amount of hardware, and in some cases the rail length will be adjusted for better fit. Module quantities followed by an asterisk require
one additional rail set at an extra charge, specified in the bottom row of table below. If the quantity is followed by double asterisks,
order two additional rail sets.

We do not recommend mounting wind generators on roofs. Though it is possible with a wind generator of 500 watts or less output,
it will be noisy. Freestanding towers, guyed towers or guyed poles may be used with wind generators.
Wind generators can be mounted on freestanding towers designed for antennas. They require a large, engineered concrete base for
support, but since they do not require guy wires, they can be installed in a smaller space. Guyed steel truss towers, also designed for
antenna mounting, are less costly and require a large area for guy wire placement.
A tilt-up pole tower is the most economical and the easiest to install. Wiring and mounting of the wind generator are done before the
tower is erected. No climbing is necessary. Steel tubing can be purchased locally to save freight.

Youre concerned about the price of electricity. Shes worried about global warming. You want less reliance on imported
energy. He wants more energy freedom. Well, at least you can agree on a residential wind generator. Designed specifically
for grid-connected homes, the Skystream 3.7 allows you to take control of your energy needs by converting the free
energy in the wind into electricity. Skystream can lower your electric bill by as much as 80%, protect you against volatile
electricity prices, reduce your dependence on foreign oil, and produce clean green energy that doesnt cause global warming.
Most importantly, it provides greater independence and stability for you and your family. This, we can all agree on.

Skystream 3.7

Wind Power
The Southwest Windpower Skystream 3.7 is a residential wind generator that hooks up to your
home to reduce or eliminate your monthly electrical bill. Its the first all-inclusive UL Listed
wind generator (with controls and inverter built in) designed to provide quiet, clean electricity
in very low winds. The Skystream is ideal for residential homes and small businesses.
Skystream connects directly to your home. When the wind is blowing, your home is powered
(in part) by Skystream; when its not, your home is seamlessly powered by your utility, as
usual. During periods of strong winds, Skystream can actually produce excess electricity.
Depending on your utility, your meter will spin backwards giving you credit for a later
date. Estimated energy production is 400 kWh per month in a 12 mph wind.
If your site fits the following criteria, Southwest Windpowers Skystream 3.7 may work for
At least 10 mph average wind speed (best results at 12 mph or more)
Your property is at least a half acre and has unobstructed views
The local zoning allows a structure that is at least 42' tall
Your utility has an existing interconnection agreement for homeowners
With a rated capacity of 1.9 kW, Skystream can provide anywhere from 40 to 100 percent of
the total energy needs a of a household or small business. Its sleek, distinctive 12-foot diam-
eter swept-wing blades and elegant form make Skystream an attractive addition to any home.
With a guyless tower, Skystream blends in like a neighborhood street lamp. And because it
operates at a low rpm, Skystream is as quiet as the trees blowing in the wind.
An optional two-way remote display unit lets you control your Skystream from up to 1000

feet (300 meters) away. You can also monitor performance and download energy performance data to your personal computer via
USB converter.
5-year limited warranty.

PVC Pipe Loss Table

Use the table below to determine what pipe size is required to efficiently allow necessary flow for your power need. Once you know
the required flow for your system (gpm), find the head loss for various pipe sizes. Multiply the head loss number by the length of
the pipe divided by 100 and you will get the loss of head for that pipe size. The actual head minus the head loss will give you the
effective dynamic head in the system.

Low Temperature Overvoltage Bypass

Protect MPPT charge controllers and grid-tie inverters from
high PV open circuit voltage at low temperatures with the new
Low Temperature Overvoltage Bypass (LTOB) from Apollo
Solar. Solar module voltage rises with drop in temperature.
Sometimes when the temperature gets very low, the voltage of
a string of several modules in series gets too high and causes
damage to a charge controller or inverter. This problem can be
solved by putting less modules in series, but sometimes this
causes a sacrifice when temperatures are high.
Now you can size the PV array for optimum performance without
regard to high open circuit voltages at low temperatures. The
Apollo Solar LTOB automatically switches modules out of the
circuit if the temperature falls below 10 degrees F. One unit is
required for each string of modules. Switch up to 8 amps per
string. Installation is simple. Just plug in M-C connectors and

NEW! Enphase

Grid-Connected Micro-Inverter System

The Enphase Micro-Inverter system is the first commercially available
micro-inverter system for residential and commercial solar PV applications.
The Enphase Micro-Inverter is a fully-integrated device that converts the
DC output from a single solar module into grid-compliant AC power. The
micro-inverter system is designed to maximize energy harvest, increase
system reliability and dramatically simplify design, installation and system
Easy Design and Installation
System design is a breeze. No more string sizing exercises. No more headaches trying to layout equal lengths of strings to fit on a
roof. Each micro-inverter is mounted to the module racking structure and connected directly to the DC wires from each PV module.
The micro-inverter AC wire harnesses are connected together to form a continuous AC branch circuit that is connected to the AC
utility distribution center.
Optimal Energy Harvest
Each PV module is now individually power tracked by a micro-inverter,
eliminating power loss caused by a few underperforming modules in the array.
Now you can realize the full energy potential of every PV array, reducing
the power-limiting effects of shading, dust, debris, module mismatch, and
thermal differences. Problems are now isolated to a small fraction of the PV
array, while the rest of the PV system continues to function normally. Service

becomes routine maintenance rather than a costly emergency.

The Enphase Micro-Inverter is qualified to a NEMA6 environment rating
and operates at full power up to 65C (149F), allowing it to be operated in
harsh environments.
Module Level Monitoring
The Enphase Micro-Inverter system includes advanced communication,
performance visualization and data analysis on a per-module basis. Every
micro-inverter communicates with the Enphase Enlighten website to show
you a physically accurate representation of your individual system and how
each PV module is performing in real time. Data is monitored 24/7 and
Enlighten will immediately notify you via email of any issues it detects. For
example, Enlighten will notify you if an individual module is underperform-
ing compared to its neighboring modules.
There are models below for 240- and 208-volt output and they are available with MC Solarline 1 or Solarline 2 cable connections on
them. They are designed for input from a 150- to 200-watt module with 72 5-inch cells. Order the voltage to match your systems and
a connector to match your module output cables. Order one install kit for each AC branch circuit of up to 16 inverters in a 240-volt

new! Sunny Island

The Sunny Island inverters can be used for standalone off-grid systems, and they are a great
way to add battery backup to an SMA Sunny Boy inverter based grid-connected system.
Grid-Tie System Backup
To do this, the grid-tie inverter output and the Sunny Island inverter output both feed circuit
breakers in a sub-panel that also powers critical loads in the event of a grid failure. As
long as grid power is present, it feeds the subpanel through the transfer switch in the Sunny
Island. If the grid fails, the Sunny Island connected to a bank of batteries acts as the source
of AC power, or the AC grid for that subpanel. This powers the critical loads connected to
the subpanel and keeps grid-connected systems running if the sun is shining. The loads are
actually powered directly by the grid-tie system if the sun is shining. If the grid-tie system is
putting out more power than the loads need during a grid failure, the Sunny Island charges
the batteries. At night or when power production is low and load use is high, the Sunny Island provides power from the battery bank.
In the morning, the batteries are recharged and the cycle begins anew until the grid power returns. If the grid-tie inverter has a 240
VAC output, a backup system will require two Sunny Island inverters or one inverter and an autotransformer.

Fronius IG Wireless Personal Display

The Fronius IG Personal Display is easy to install and easy to use. The readout and inter-
face are based on the same display that comes standard on all Fronius IG Series inverters.
Although tested to 150 feet indoors and 500 feet outdoors, there are many reports from the
field of the units transmitting from much farther distances.
The Personal Display can aggregate data for up to 15 Fronius IG inverters or show data for
each individual inverter in a system i.e., data from a system that is over 75 kW AC can
be viewed together or as sub-systems. It shows instantaneous data such as power, voltage
and current, and it will store the daily and cumulative data. The display offers two levels
of access: easy and pro. In the easy level, homeowners can view system basics like power,
energy output, CO2 offset, and the number of dollars saved. The pro level offers more
advanced information like voltage, current and grid frequency. The unit was designed with a backlit display and a stylish silver case
to attract the attention of solar enthusiasts and their visitors alike. The display can mount on a wall near a thermostat or clock, or be
placed on a coffee table or night stand. A wireless card is required for each inverter to be monitored.

split-chassis design keeps the wiring box separate from the inverter, allowing for easy access
and spacing to the AC and DC string terminals and eliminating exposed wiring during inverter
installation and removal. The wiring box includes eight 3/4-inch knockouts and easy access
DC and AC terminal blocks that accept wire sizes from #14 to #6 AWG.
The GT enclosure is a NEMA 3R, allowing for both for outdoor and indoor installation. The
inverter includes a slotted, hook-style back plate for easy installation. For large systems, multiple
inverters can be mounted side by side centered on standard 16" stud spacing to reduce visible
conduit and make installations look more attractive.
GT inverters come standard with a backlit 16-character two-line liquid crystal display (LCD).
The display provides inverter power, daily and lifetime energy production, PV array voltage
and current, utility voltage and frequency, time online selling today, fault messages, and
two installer-customizable screens. Tapping a finger close to the LCD activates the backlight
display. With each tap, the display cycles through the communication screens. The LCD is
always on standby, ready to provide information even at night. When inverters are daisy chained
using standard Cat 5 Ethernet cable, each inverter display will report the output of the entire
system. The GT offers an isolated RS232 port and two Xanbus RJ45 communication ports. No
additional communication ports or cards are needed to connect a PC.
Inverter Monitor

Grid-Tie Residential
The monitor easily connects to Xantrex GT Series inverters using
standard off-the-shelf Cat 5 Ethernet cable. Built-in flash memory
stores PV system data and makes software upgrades simple. This
connection also provides power to the monitor, removing the need
for a monitor power supply. It displays total PV system performance
in daily, monthly and lifetime views on a graphical 128 x 64 pixel
LCD screen. The display can access detailed individual inverter
performance through the device list screen and it can display individual and total system performance for
up to five GT Series inverters. Wall mounting bracket and hardware included.
The Xantrex Communication Gateway
The Communication Gateway bridges the gap between Xantrex solar inverters and the
system owners computer. It logs performance data directly from the Xantrex GT inverters,
and transmits it to the included Yahoo Widget-based monitoring software for a simple
and graphically rich view of system performance. More than a data logger, the Gateway
offers a web page with the ability to configure automated email reports and fault status to
the user or installer. The Gateway includes both built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity
allowing for flexible and simple set up for wireless or wired connection to a router or direct
to a PC. The Gateway logs and transmits system power production, inverter-specific power production, lifetime power production
history (daily, weekly, monthly) and inverter faults. It can monitor a network consisting of up to 20 single-phase GT inverters through
a Cat 5 connection between each inverter and the gateway.

GTFX and GVFX Grid-Tie Inverters and Systems

The OutBack G-Series inverters are the grid-interactive versions in OutBacks FX inverter line. Available in
either sealed (GTFX) or vented (GVFX) models, these inverters allow you to sell solar, wind, and/or hydro
power back to the utility grid. If the utility power goes down, the inverter will automatically switch to bat-
tery power and your renewable energy source(s) to run your critical loads. The inverter can be set up so that
either utility power, or your renewable source, can be used to recharge the battery bank after an outage. AC
power is seamlessly switched between utility and battery power through the inverters built-in 60A transfer
switch. With the OutBack grid-interactive system, backup AC power is made available 24 hours a day in the event of a utility outage,
providing reliable power and peace of mind. At night, the inverter's automatic power save mode ensures that energy is not wasted
by needlessly charging your batteries from the utility grid. Daily energy production efficiency is within a few percentage points of
batteryless grid-intertie systems (depending on the condition of the battery bank). Up to two grid-interactive FXs can be combined
and wired or stacked for 120/240V output. The Grid-Tie FX Series Inverter/Chargers can be stacked in Classic Series only, which
is limited to two grid-interactive FXs. Note: The FW-X240 Auto Transformer cannot be used for stacking with a Grid-Interactive
FX system. However, the FW-X240 can be used to step-up the AC output of a single Grid-Interactive FX system from 120VAC to
240VAC. These inverters are not recommended for off-grid use. See page xx for OutBack off-grid inverter models.
OutBack G-Series inverters come with a standard 2-year warranty with an optional 3-year extension (5-years total). A 10-year war-
ranty is available for California residents. ETL Listed to UL standards.

The Xantrex XW Series hybrid inverter/charger offers an innovative, integrated design
which minimizes external balance-of-system components allowing for much quicker
and easier installation. The XW Series offers pure sine-wave capability as well as
split-phase operation right out of the box for 120 VAC and/or 240 VAC solutions. Up
to three units can be operated in parallel, offering 18 kW, 120/240 VAC power.
Certified to UL-1741 and CSA for grid-tie applications, the XW can be used as a
grid-tie battery-backup inverter or an off-grid inverter. One or two XW MPPT charge
controllers are required for PV grid-tie operation.
Unsurpassed surge capacity is achieved by using digital control to regulate the output
voltage from dropping during surge. A full 200% rated output power is delivered to
load under surge conditions. Efficient, power-factor-corrected, high-current multi-stage
battery charging minimizes recharge time and electricity/fuel costs, and prolongs bat-
tery life.
The inverter display panel give status-at-a-glance. LEDs indicate AC-in status, faults/
warnings, equalize mode, and battery state of charge. Three-character LCD indicates
output power or charge current.
The new wall-mount design is easier to install than the SW power panel. The power
distribution panel includes all AC/DC disconnects and wiring so there is no need to
individually purchase separate components. The distribution panel and conduit box is
factory wired and labelled to support one inverter in a code-compliant manner, and it

Off-Grid Inverters
The sealed, fan-cooled OutBack FX is designed to survive harsh environments. The higher
powered ventilated VFX version is a better choice in high ambient temperature applications or
where generator-powered battery charging is an important part of system battery charging.
Each inverter/charger is a complete power conversion system DC to AC inverter, battery charger
and AC transfer switch. Additional inverter/chargers can be added at any time either in parallel
(120VAC), series (120/240VAC), or even three-phase (120Y208 VAC) configurations, allowing
the system to be tailored to the specific needs of the application, both at the time of installation
and into the future. With the addition of an X-240 autotransformer, multiple inverter systems
can be set up to provide 120/240 VAC split-phase output with the ability to provide full power
on either 120VAC leg of the system. Up to ten inverters can be connected together to provide
up to 36 kW of continuous power capacity with the use of the HUB and the MATE controller.
The inverters powerful battery charger operates in five stages: BULK (constant current output), ABSORB (constant voltage output),
FLOAT (reduced voltage output), SILENT (no charger output) and EQUALIZE (constant voltage regulation overcharging). Charge
time in each stage is adjustable to provide control and to maximize the performance of the charger and battery system.
Each OutBack inverter has a programmable, auxiliary relay output connection (AUX) that provides 12VDC output to run 12V cooling
or ventilation fans or operate an external relay to perform other functions, such as remote generator starting (two-wire), to disconnect
external charging sources (such as PV), or to turn on a diversion load for voltage regulation.
The transfer switch is rated for 60 amps. When an external source of AC power (either a generator or the utility grid) is detected at
the AC in terminal on the inverter, the switch operates to transfer the loads to the external power source, and then activates the
battery charger to re-charge the battery bank.

Inverters with an M-suffix are an RV/marine version. They have a transfer switch that switches hot and neutral. Dimensions: 16.25"
L x 8.25" W x 11.5" H. ETL Listed to UL 1741. Standard 2-year warranty with an available 5-year extended warranty.

NEW! Samlex Sine Wave Inverter/Chargers
The SL inverter is a low-cost, heavy-duty pure sine wave inverter, primarily
designed for backup power in places where power is unreliable. It can supply
power to various loads such as resistive load (heater), inductive load (air condi-
tioners, refrigerator), motors (vacuum cleaners), and rectifier load (computer).
All SL-series inverters are designed to work in heavy load condition. De-rating
is not necessary. It has a built-it battery charger and transfer switch. It can be
a good choice for remote cabins with small generator backup.
The smart charger can be set with different charging profiles and battery capacities to match various battery types and sizes.
When used for backup to utility power, the internal transfer switch automatically transfers the output between inverter and utility
source. When the utility voltage is low or off, it switches to the inverter power. Otherwise the load is connected to the utility source.
The transfer time is 1/4~1/2 of the total cycle time. The high-power charger (40A on the SL2024 for example) can charge a 24V/400
Ah battery bank in 10 hours.
SL series is an extremely good choice for utility backup power. It also can be used as a UPS for computers. 1-year warranty.

PowerHub 1800
The Xantrex PowerHub is designed with the do-it-yourselfer in mind. The PowerHub is
an inverter/battery charger combination with an attached battery box for two 100 amp-
hour 12-volt batteries. One or two battery boxes can be attached to the PowerHub.
The PowerHub with two fully charged 100 Ah batteries can deliver up 950 watt-hours
of electricity to run small appliances in a weekend cabin or during a power failure.
The PowerHub allows batteries to be recharged with a small wind generator and/or PV
systems, with a gas generator or with utility power. It does not have a built-in charge
controller for PV modules but it has two DC charging inputs, one at 32 amps maxi-
mum, labeled PV and one at 80 amps labeled wind. Both could be used for PV with
the addition of a charge controller. The 80-amp input is suitable for an AirX wind turbine (page 61) which has a built-in regulator.
When AC power is available from a generator or utility grid, the PowerHub will function as an automatic backup power unit. It will
sit in bypass mode and will pass the power through to support the loads and/or the battery charger. When AC power is connected to
the unit, input from wind or solar will not be used for powering the loads. When the AC input fails, the PowerHubs automatic transfer
relay de-energizes and will switch the unit to inverter mode within 40 milliseconds.
Once AC input is restored, after a 20-second delay the relay energizes and qualifies the AC input and the load is automatically recon-
nected to the primary AC source.
When no AC power is available from a generator or utility grid, the inverter draws power from the battery bank and delivers a
modified-sine wave AC output voltage. This output voltage can be accessed by using the four outlets on the front of the unit or by
hard wiring the unit to the AC distribution panel which provides AC power to AC outlets at the site.
The inverter control panel provides a user interface for monitoring power levels, battery levels, and controlling the inverter func-
tions and displays. Four 120VAC outlets on the front panel provide up to 1440W (continuous) output power. One 15 A supplemental
protector provides over-load protection to the four AC outlets on the front panel. CSA Listed. 1-year warranty.

dential, light commercial or rural electrifi-
cation systems by supporting up to two FX
Series inverter/chargers and up to two MX
charge controllers. FLEXware 500 AC and
Fully Assembled Systems

DC enclosures accommodate all the essential

protective devices while still providing lots of
room for additional breakers and large cable
connections. In addition to the ability to be
mounted horizontally, a FLEXware 500 based
system can also be mounted vertically for
added versatility. FLEXware 500 systems
come with one RTS, IOB-D-120/240VAC
and HUB4. Two-inverter systems also come
with a X-240.
FLEXware 1000 System
A FLEXware 1000-based system is best
utilized in applications with greater power
requirements like large residential, commer-
cial or mini-grid projects. FLEXware 1000
system architecture is capable of supporting
up to four FX Series inverter/chargers, four
MX charge controllers, and all the required
AC and DC components and wiring. FLEX-
ware 1000 is easily expandable for systems
as large and complex as your imagination
allows. FLEXware 1000 AC and DC enclo-
sures accommodate all essential protective
devices while still providing lots of room for
additional breakers and large cable connections. With mounting provisions for three DC shunts, there is now space for enough to max
out the inputs of multi-channel amp-hour meters. For added versatility a FLEXware 1000-based system can be mounted horizontally
or vertically. FLEXware 1000 systems come with one RTS, IOB-Q-120/240VAC, HUB10 and X-240.

The Xantrex DC Disconnect is a white, powder-coated indoor enclosure with conduit knockouts for con-
nection to inverters, batteries, DC charging sources, charge controllers and DC load centers. It comes with
one 175A or 250A circuit breaker for an inverter (with space for a second breaker for a second inverter;
order separately) that meets the National Electric Code requirements for disconnection and overcurrent
protection of battery-based power systems. There are knockouts on the sides for four 15- to 100-amp DC
breakers used for charging sources and DC loads. Use the DC Bonding Block (DCBB; order separately
below) for connecting the negative cables and for single-point DC system grounding. There are pre-drilled
places inside for two metering shunts. Knock-outs on the top are provided for mounting two Xantrex C-Series
or OutBack MX-60 PV charge controllers, or one BlueSky PV charge controller. Knockouts on the sides
are designed for mounting two Xantrex SW, SW Plus, or DR inverter/chargers with their optional conduit
boxes and 2" offset nipples.

NEW! T100 and T80 PV MPPT Battery Charge Management Systems

The T80 and T100 Charge Controllers integrate maximum power point tracking, battery charge man-
agement, state-of-charge information and communications into a single device. The T80 can deliver 80
amps continuous output to 12-, 24- or 48-volt battery systems from PV arrays with open circuit voltage
up to 140 VDC (150 volts absolute maximum voltage).
The new The T100 provides 100 amps continuous output and allows you to wire modules in series up
to 200 Voc max/160 volts nominal.
Wire modules in series to use smaller wire between the array and charge controller. These MPPT charge
controllers capture up to 35% more power from the PV array. Their MPPT algorithm starts early and
locks onto the peak power during rapidly changing insolation and temperature. Four-stage charging with
adjustable set points for all parameters.
The T80 and T100 produce full-rated power without de-rating up to 40 degrees C ambient temperature.
Above that, the output current is reduced gradually to protect the life of the T80, and then automati-
cally ramped up as the temperature decreases. High efficiency power circuits and robust thermal design
minimize heat generation. The internal temperature-controlled variable speed fan runs just fast enough
to maintain optimum reliability. UL Listed. Dimensions are 15.2" x 8.5" x 4.4" and weight is 22 lbs.
Both controllers include a built-in energy monitor using TriMetric technology from Bogart Engineering. The monitor tracks energy
production and consumption to calculate the energy remaining in the battery. State of charge (SOC) is displayed in percent full, amp-
hours, watt-hours, and bar-graph format. They store 90 days of energy-harvest history and feature a slot for add-in cards providing
system performance, data communication, and firmware updates via the Apollo Solar Wireless Remote Monitoring Display, PCs,
and the Internet. Controllers do not include shunt. Order a 50mV/500A shunt on page 119 if your system doesn't have one. Both the
T80 and T100 support flooded lead acid (FLA), GEL and absorbed glass mat (AGM) batteries.
Two independently programmable SPST relays can be used to control external devices based on battery voltage, charge or discharge
current or battery state of charge. Contact rating is amp at up to 50 VDC.
Optional wired and wireless displays are available. The RD wired display can be up to 100 feet from the
controller using 4-conductor telephone cable. The RD100 wireless display can be 100 feet away from

Charge Controllers
XW-MPPT60-150 Charge Controller
The XW-MPPT60-150 can used with PV arrays with a voltage equal to anything from battery voltage
to 150 VDC and can support an output of up to 60 amps into the battery for battery voltage of 12 to
60 VDC. The PV open circuit voltage must not exceed 150 VDC.
Maximum power point tracking allows the charge controller to harvest the maximum energy avail-
able from the PV array and deliver it to the batteries. The MPPT algorithm continuously adjusts the
operating points in an attempt to find the maximum power point of the array. The algorithm can then
determine if it is harvesting more or less power than the previous operating points.
The charge controller has a configurable auxiliary output (producing 5 to 13 volts at 200 mA) to
drive a relay for load control or to turn on devices such as vent fans or indicator alarms. The auxiliary
output can be configured to perform only one function at a time.
Its large aluminum heatsink allows it to operate at full power with only convection cooling, without
the need for a fan. Built-in PV ground fault protection allows code-compliant installation without
the need for additional ground fault protection. The XW-MPPT60-150 can be mounted on the side
or top of the XW power distribution panel, or used by itself in other PV systems. The front panel
features a 2-line 16-character display and four buttons for configuration and system monitoring. A
battery temperature sensor is included with the controller.
The XW-MPPT60-150 is able to communicate its settings and activity to other Xanbus-enabled
devices, such as the XW Series inverter/charger, the system control panel II (SCP), XW automatic
generator start (XW-AGS), and other Xantrex XW-MPPT-60-150 solar charge controllers through the Xanbus network.

Array size can be up to 750 watts when charging a 12-volt

MX60 and FLEXmax80 MPPT Charge Controllers
Rated for up to 60 amps of DC output current, the OutBack MX60 can be used with battery systems from
12 to 60 VDC with PV open-circuit voltage as high as 140 VDC. The MX60 setpoints are fully adjustable
to allow use with virtually any battery type, chemistry and charging profile. The OutBack MX60 allows
you to use a higher output voltage PV array with a lower voltage battery such as charging a 12- or
24-VDC battery with a 48-VDC PV array. This reduces wire size and power loss from the PV array to the
battery/inverter location and can maximize the performance of your PV system. Array size can be up to
707 watts when charging a 12-volt battery, 1,500 watts when charging at 24 volts and 3,000 watts when
charging at 48 volts.
The FLEXmax80 (FM80) is the latest innovation in Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT) charge
controllers from OutBack Power Systems. Its innovative MPPT algorithm is both continuous and active,
increasing your renewable energy yield up to 30%. Thanks to enhanced cooling, the FM80 can operate at
its full 80-amp maximum current rating in ambient temperatures as high as 104F (40C). Array size can
be up to 11,250 watts when charging a 12-volt battery; 2,500 watts when charging at 24 volts; and 5,000
watts when charging at 48 volts.
Both controllers come standard with an easy-to-use-and-understand display of PV system performance.

Blue Sky IPN Controllers

Charge Controllers
Solar Boost 3024i and 2512iX charge controllers include load control outputs.
These controllers can also serve as lighting controllers with complete flexibility
over post-dusk and pre-dawn ON time settings. An IPN-ProRemote is required
to enable and configure dusk-to-dawn lighting control. The IPN-ProRemote does
not need to remain with the system and can be used as a setup tool only.

Solar Boost 2512i and 2512iX

The low-cost Solar Boost 2512i provides a fully automatic 3-stage charge control-
ler system. A partial IPN network interface is also included to allow use of the
IPN-Remote or IPN-ProRemote displays.
Additional features provided in the Solar Boost 2512iX include automatic or
manual equalization, battery temperature sensor input, full IPN network compat-
ibility, and an auxiliary output. The user-configurable auxiliary output can serve as
either a 25-amp load controller or a 2-amp auxiliary battery charger. The auxiliary
battery charge feature is ideal for charging a separate battery such as the engine
battery in an RV.

Solar Boost 3024iL

SB3024iL is designed to charge 12- and 24-volt battery systems from
a 24-volt array (maximum open circuit voltage is 57). Maximum
charge current is 40 amps output at 12 and 30 amps at 24 VDC. The
new IPN network interface coordinates multiple controllers and shares

temperature sensors and display.

Optional Equipment
A remote temp probe and a remote digital display can be mounted up to
300 feet away and used with all of the Solar Boost controllers. Optional
shunts allow it to monitor other charging sources and loads.

IPN Remote
The IPN Remote display provides basic monitoring for IPN compatible charge control-
lers. The unit displays battery voltage, output current and charge controller system status
for up to 8 charge controllers on a single IPN network.
An LED display is used to provide readability in any lighting. The charge status indica-
tor displays present charge controller system status and shows relative battery state-of-
charge. When the battery is being charged the display toggles between battery voltage
and charge controller output current. The current display can be configured to show the
total output current from all controllers on the IPN network, or the output current from
a particular controller. Multiple IPN-Remote displays can be placed on a single IPN
network even if an IPN-ProRemote is already present.

Charge Controllers

C-35, C-40 and C-60 PWM Controllers

The Xantrex C-35, C-40, and C-60 PWM (pulse width modulator) controllers can be used as PV
charge controllers, DC load controllers or DC diversion regulators in 12-, 24- and 48-volt systems
(except only the C40 can be used in 48-volt systems). They operate in only one mode at a time, so to
provide both PV charge controller and low battery load disconnect, two controllers must be used. As
DC load controllers they disconnect the load at a user-settable low voltage and reconnect at a higher
voltage reconnect point. As diversion controllers they send excess power to a dummy load
(such as a water or space heater) to regulate hydroelectric or wind generators. When used in diver-
sion mode, derate the amperage by 25%. All Xantrex controllers, when used as a charge controller,
have field-adjustable bulk and float setpoints and perform automatic equalization every 30 days or
whenever LVD is reached. Equalization can be manually initiated with automatic shut-off. Order
the optional temperature sensor for a more accurate battery charge controller. The optional LCD
digital display shows battery voltage, array amps and watts, cumulative amp-hours and a separately
resettable trip amp-hour measurement. The digital display is available for mounting on the front
of the charge controller, or with a 50- or 100-foot cable for remote mounting in a double-gang
electrical box. UL Listed. 2-year warranty.

MK Battery
Sealed PV/Solar Batteries
MK sealed batteries are designed for maintenance-free operation for
the life of the battery. Sealed construction eliminates periodic water-
ing, corrosive acid fumes and spills. Tank formed plates ensure voltage
matching between cells. Most models are rated non-spillable by ICAO,
IATA and DOT, meaning easy transportation by air and no special con-
tainers are needed. Exceptions are the three asterisked AGM models
below, which cannot be shipped by air freight or UPS and must be
shipped by truck freight on pallets. 1-year warranty.
MK Sealed Gel Batteries
The gelled electrolyte wont stratify, so no equalization charging is
required. Less than 2% per month standby loss means low discharge
during transport and storage. Gel batteries are best for cycling opera-
tions and where very cold temperatures are expected. They can operate at temperatures from -76 to 140 F.
MK Sealed AGM Batteries
These are completely sealed, absorbed glass mat, valve-regulated batteries with efficient recombination. UL Recognized components
to UL MH17218. AGM batteries are recommended for battery backup standby power systems where batteries are in float service with
occasional deep discharges. They can operate at temperatures from -40 to 140 F. Delivered from one of 20 MK warehouses across
the US. NOTE: The 3 asterisked models below can NOT be shipped by air or UPS, only by truck freight.

Rolls/Surrette Battery

Deep Cycle Industrial Flooded Batteries

These are the new generation, dual container, deep cycle Rolls
batteries from Surrette. (S-460 and S-530 are not dual container).
They are high-capacity batteries with heavy duty plate grid to
resist positive plate breakdown. The plates are double insulated
with glass mat and a polyethylene envelope, eliminating the pos-
sibility of separator misalignment, cracked separators, treeing
or shorting at the bottoms or sides. Rolls batteries are rated at
3200 cycles at 50% depth of discharge except for S-460 and
S-530 which are rated at 1000 cycles. Each 2-volt cell is built
into its own lightweight container made of durable polypropylene
with the cover heat bonded to the container, thus acid leakage is
eliminated. The cells are then assembled into a tough, lightweight
polyethylene outer container with a removable lid. Even if the
outer container were to break, the battery would still be operable
without acid spills. The individual cells are bolted together (CS
and KS series) allowing the battery to be disassembled and the
cells can be independently removed.
This facilitates easy on-site installation, disassembly, assembly, or
replacements of individual cells without special skills or tools. All
Surrette CS & KS deep cycle solar batteries come with a 10-year
warranty, 3-year full warranty, and 7-year prorated.

Batteries shipped to commercial addresses qualify for free ship-

ping to different regions of the country as follows:
East of the Mississippi:
S-460s and S-530s 18 batteries or more

New! Deka Unigy II Sealed Industrial Batteries
The Deka Unigy II line features two module designs with a wide range of capacities to fit the requirements
of renewable energy applications. These batteries are ideal for float applications with an occasional deep
discharge, such as battery-backup for grid-connected systems. The front safety shield design easily clips
on and off without tools for quicker assembly. The modules are coated with acid resistant epoxy powder
paint and each module has mounting holes for grounding option.
These batteries are available with interlocked frames for locations with tough seismic requirement and non-
interlocked frames where this is not required. They are also available with flame retardant polyethylene
cases. The interlocking module frames require only front access bolts for mounting, providing quick and
safe installation. Their standard one-piece base enables it to be used as anchoring template. Anchors can
be drilled and installed with base in place. They are certified to UBC 97 Zone 4 Top of Building up to 8
modules high. The non-interlock modules require front and rear access bolts for mounting, providing easy
and safe installation. The standard two-piece base enables anchors to be drilled and installed with base in
place. The non-interlock version is certified to UBC 97 Zone 2B Top of Building up to 8 modules high.
To order, pick the prefix of the battery with the capacity required, then add the suffix to indicate the case
type and whether they are interlocking modules.

Water Miser Battery Caps

Water Misers are molded plastic flip-top vent caps designed to reduce and ease main-
tenance on flooded lead-acid batteries. There is no need to remove the caps when charg-
ing, filling or equalizing the batteries. When charging, the plastic pellets capture up to
90% of the moisture and acid droplets. This reduces acid fumes, corrosion, and keeps the
battery tops much cleaner and dryer. Excess water is dropped back into the battery cell.
Water loss is reduced, which extends time between watering.
These caps fit all batteries with standard caps.

DLS Converter/Chargers
The DLS series converter/power supply output is so clean and ripple-free, it can be used with or without
a battery. The DLS series converter/charger quickly and efficiently charges batteries from the full rated
output of the DLS. The DLS then maintains the batteries, only putting into the battery what is required
by load or self discharge, cutting back to milliamps as the battery requires. Low and transient AC line
voltage can be a major cause of converter/power supply failure. The DLS series converter/power supply
is protected against low line voltage, as well as spikes coming from the AC power source or from improperly
adjusted generators. When used as a power supply, the DLS model will only supply what is required by the load.
When not in use it is essentially off,

WEEB Grounding Products
WEEB stands for "washer, electrical equipment bonding." WEEB products are used to bond solar modules to aluminum solar mounting
rails. The mounts are then grounded, grounding the entire assembly. This eliminates the need to use a lay-in lug and thread-forming
screw on each module and it eliminates the need to run a continuous wire to each module.
This saves time and money and it meets the requirements of UL 467. Wire is only needed to connect a lay-in lug on each module rail
to an equipment grounding terminal in the inverter or disconnect. ETL listed to UL standards.

240V and 600V NEMA 3R Safety Switch Disconnects

According to the National Electric Code, section 690.15, PV arrays must have a disconnecting means
to isolate the inverter from the PV power source. Utility grid-tie inverters that utilize PV arrays
with voltages above 250VDC require a disconnect rated for 600VDC to perform this function. The
Square-D 600VDC 30-amp 3-pole safety switches are UL Listed to handle 13A at 600VDC per pole.
They can be used for disconnecting up to three PV arrays for three grid-tie inverters. It has wiring
lugs that are rated to accept two #14 to #10 wires in each lug.
This allows the disconnect switch to also act as a string combiner in systems that utilize two strings
of PV modules per inverter. The 600VDC 60-amp 3-pole safety switches are UL Listed to handle
38A at 600VDC per pole. All other Square-D 600VDC disconnects are rated for disconnecting one
string at full rated power.
Many utilities require an AC disconnect between a grid-tie inverter and the AC load center, close to
the AC service entrance, with a visible and lockable handle. A 30-amp 240-volt disconnect is good for
up to 5kW at 240 VAC and the 60-amp disconnect is good for up to 11kW. For connection of multiple
inverters to one of these disconnects, use an AC load center, with a circuit breaker for each inverter
installed, as an AC combiner box between the inverters and the disconnect switch. The breakers can
be back-fed with the inverter outputs and the load center main lugs will handle the combined outputs
to be connected to the AC disconnect.
